Taylor Swift Gives Powerful Testimony in Groping Trial

Taylor Swift Gives Powerful Testimony in Groping Trial Taylor Swift Gives Powerful Testimony in Groping Trial

Taylor claims he slipped his hand under her dress and grabbed her bare bottom as they posed. "So in my opinion, I knew he touched her".

The photographer at the meet-and-greet, Stephanie Simbeck, testified Thursday that she also witnessed the alleged groping.

(8) McFarland asked Swift if she thinks Mueller got what he deserved.

The incident changed the way Dent dealt with future meet-and-greets, he said. Along with being fired from the radio station, Mueller says that he has been banned from Swift concerts for life following the accusation. Coomer called it a lie.

Mueller claims that this photo doesn't actually show that he's touching her, which is fair. You can ask me a million questions-I'm never going to say anything different.

Swift's reply: "Because my ass is located in the back of my body". But he insists he was touching Swift in her ribs, not her rear, as she alleges in the groping case.

David Mueller is in court with Taylor SwiftWho is David Mueller? Swift responded to the first variation of the question with, "I don't feel anything about Mr. Mueller".

Channeling her inner Swift sass, we see!

But if Swift believes she was assaulted - as she clearly does - it is hard to view her actions Thursday as something other than courageous and important. Swift's bodyguard and Simbeck are listed as potential witnesses. According to Swift, the only way someone could have seen the alleged incident was if they were "lying directly under my skirt and we didn't have anyone positioned there".

Mueller had earlier testified on Tuesday that he may have made innocent contact with Swift but denied any inappropriate behaviour, including groping. "And it went behind her, and her hand, or arm, went behind my arm".

Which leads us to Taylor Swift.

Swift was also asked about Mueller's girlfriend at the time, Shannon Melcher, who was standing closer to the singer and is smiling in the photo.

She said couldn't have said anything about what happened without others already in the photo area overhearing.

"I did not want every interview from now on to have to make her include what happened to her". Swift is countersuing for just $1. She added, "He stayed latched on to my bare ass...as I moved away from him visibly uncomfortable..." Following this incident, Swift and her team raised a complaint with Mueller's bosses, who promptly fired him.

"It was a definite grab, not just jostling".

Singer Taylor Swift has described the June 2013 incident when a former radio DJ allegedly groped her as "horrifying and shocking".

Wednesday's testimony highlighted an initial attempt to keep the encounter in Denver out of the spotlight.

He was 51 at the time while Taylor was 23.

Swift adamantly countered that claim in court. Her lawsuit argued that the trial would "serve as an example to other women who may resist publicly reliving similar outrageous and humiliating acts".
